Application information for individuals
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Carewest.
Note: You must be 16 or over to volunteer with Carewest. Pain & Palliative volunteers must be 18.
Criminal Records Checks
As required under the Protection for Persons in Care Act (PPCA), Carewest must obtain a current vulnerable sector criminal records check for every new hire and volunteer. Carewest will accept a vulnerable sector criminal records check dated within ninety (90) days prior to commencement of duties.
Carewest does not normally hire persons with active criminal records for which a pardon has not been obtained.
Corporate Calgary or groups are always welcome
Carewest is always looking at new and innovative ways to engage with Calgary corporations or groups. We have seen first-hand how valuable the relationship between our clients and corporate volunteers can be. We have been fortunate enough to work with companies that donate their time and energy to assist with special events, spring and fall clean-up, visiting, donations, etc.
Whether you have a department of five or 50 employees, we can work together to find mutually beneficial activities. Corporate involvement can be a one-time event or on-going.
